My big complaint is that most step through bikes have too small a frame. Thinking of building up a VO or Soma mixte with a 56 to 58 cm frame. I also note that the Breezer Uptown does not call their no top tube frames "ladies" but "Low-Step", and offers them in frame sizes upto 21". To me a step through frame makes a lot of sense for a urban transport bike.
